TWQQF ch 224 - Plotted Against By The Relatives; An Attack At Midnight (9)

As far as they are concerned, just being able to work at the Cheng’s were good enough. After all, they were gainfully employed at the Cheng’s.

While they were chitchatting, Liu Danhuang came rushing over. Cupping his hand at Cheng Biyuan, he said, “Master, Instructor, shi mei, a group of people had just arrived. They said they were here to visit Master and shi mu.

“To visit us? Did you ask them who they are?” Lately there had been lots of visitors like that, so none of them were particularly surprised!

Liu Danhuang had an odd look on his face. He nodded and said, “Master, one of the ladies with the group said she is shi mu’s sister!”

“What? Luo Yujie?”

Cheng Biyuan’s look darkened a little and he frowned. He was not excited that his sister-in-law came to visit. Quite the contrary, he wasn’t happy at all.

Zhou Jinjiang sat quitely to one side; this was the Cheng’s personal business, it would be  inappropriate for him to chime in.

Cheng Xiao Xiao raised her brows. She had more or less heard some stories about her relatives on her mother’s side. This aunt of hers was married to an elder of the Mingdong. But why were they here today?

Anyone with half a brain could figure that one out.

“Xiao Xiao, what do you think?

Cheng Biyuan couldn’t help but to ask his daughter’s opinion.

Cheng Xiao Xiao frowned a bit and then smiled, “Dad, they are already here. It’s not like we can tell them to leave. If mom ever finds out, you won’t be able to go back to bed!”

“You little brat!”

“HOHOHO, I think Xiao Xiao got you there!”

The two elders reacted simultaneously to her comment; even Liu Danhuang to the side couldn’t help but lifted up his head and casted a glance at her.

Cheng Xiao Xiao, who was clothed in all moon white color seemed even more clear and plain than normal; her outfit made her looked even more graceful and ethereal. Liu Danhuang continued to stare at her for a quite before he could turn his attention somewhere else.

Naturally his behavior did not escape the eyes of those that were present, especially Cheng Biyuan who had always known of his fondness for his daughter. He just pretended that he didn’t notice.

Zhou Jinjiang seemed to have noticed that as well, but since the father didn’t even say anything, it was definitely not his place to say anything.

“Danhuang, why don’t you show them in first? I will go get your shi mu!” said Cheng Biyuan.

“Yes, Master!”

Liu Danhuang turned and left.

After he had left, with a hint of smile Zhou Jinjiang looked at Cheng Xiao Xiao and teased, “Xiao Xiao, Liu Danhuang isn’t a bad kid, but he is just not quite there. I wonder what kind of ideal man is our Xiao Xiao looking for?”

Ideal man?

A random question, the handsome and unjust-looking face flashed in front of her eyes. She couldn’t help but shuddered, why did she think of that fool?

“Uncle Zhou, I will let you know as soon as I find him!” With that said, Cheng Xiao Xiao stood up right away and told her father, “Dad, I will go get mom!”

“Okay!” nodded Cheng Biyuan in respond.

Seeing that Cheng Xiao Xiao had disappeared outside the door, Zhou Jinjiang looked back over to Cheng Biyuan and asked, “How’s your relationship with the GU’s now? If I remember correctly, Xiao Xiao had been betrothed to them?”

“Brother Zhou, you can forget about that. Xiao Xiao didn’t like the kid Junxian at all. The last time they met each other they were at each other’s throats. Xiao Xiao had made it abundantly clear that she will not marry into the Gu’s!” smiled Cheng Biyuan bitterly.

After pondering for a bit, Zhou Jinjiang said, “I don’t think the Gu’s will just let that go!”


“I made a promise to Xiao Xiao to let her made her own decisions on her own matters. There’s not much we can do here. By now you should be able to tell that even though little Xiao Xiao looks tender from the outside, she is actually quite stubborn!”
